Also a good place for some rock climbing and abseiling, if you're into that, or just watch the fun.

Getting there:

The Brooyar State Forest map page from the link below shows three access points. From the south turning off the Gympie Woolooga Road onto Diggins Road that becomes Greendale Road and signposted left just beyond the Glastonbury Creek Camping Area.

From the north off the Wide Bay Highway onto Petersen Road or further along onto Reid Road, again signposted at the junctions.

All these roads are unsealed and can be driven by 2WD vehicles, but a 4WD is recommended. A small car park is located at the start of the lookout track.

A track also leads off from the left of the lookout to the bottom of the cliff. This is the access route for the climbing Crag. Please be respectful of the climbers and don't attempt to climb without the proper equipment and training.

Comments

The fun part is watching the intrepid abseilers disappear over the cliff edge to the bottom some 75m below on any one of the 26 points.

Not sure it counts as a bush walk, but it was listed so why not. Climbing access, views are ok.
